Zinpro Corporation Sponsored Hoard’s Dairyman Webinar

Dr. Mike Hutjens, University of Illinois, Discussed “Precision Feeding”

The Hoard’s Dairyman monthly educational webinar in October looked at the various phases of controlling nutrients as they leave the field, their role through the production phase and ultimately, in finished dairy products. Sponsored by Zinpro Corporation and presented by Dr. Mike Hutjens, University of Illinois, the “Precision  Feeding” webinar was held on Monday, Oct. 10, 2011. Featured areas of discussion included: forage variation, feed ingredient selection, ration balancing approaches, ration delivery and mixing, cow sorting and bunk management, rumen fermentation factors, and evaluation of milk component and yield changes. With high feed prices, the ability to reduce variation can result in feed savings and/or improved milk production.
